19 Weeks of Captain Swan:

Week 5: Captain Swan + Underrated Moments

Okay so originally, I was gonna make an entire gifset of cutesy moments like I have been doing for this whole hiatus meme, but I reached this scene in my gifmaking and I literally HAD TO drop everything and just talk about this scene.

So first of all, wow our babies at the (almost) beginning. They hadn’t even kissed yet at this point, much less admitted that they had feelings for each other (although they were making it pretty obvious, the precious idiots). Emma had just spoken of her life in the foster system, and how she often lost hope of ever truly finding a home. Of all the people that she told this to (her parents, Killian, and Regina) Killian was the ONLY ONE to try and comfort her about it and to try and relate to her to make her not feel so alone. And this was after she had admitted that she felt like a lost girl who would never matter to anyone.

BUT NOT ONLY THAT. While Killian is trying to OPEN HIMSELF UP TO EMMA (something that he doesn’t do to many other people, I mean did you see his nervous little face before he started talking to her), he brushes, or very nearly brushes, her arm just briefly. Then he immediately pulls away. But Emma noticed it.

And she stared down at where he brushed her and SHE LICKED HER LIPS LIKE EMMA PLEASE YOU SO HAVE FEELINGS FOR HIM YOU ARE NOT FOOLING ANYONE.

And the way she just stares at him afterwards. She WANTS to return the gesture and open herself up to him too, but she’s too scared. And she pushes him away and says she’s “not in the mood” to talk to him. But she looks back at him with such understanding in her eyes, almost like she’s imploring him to get it. And we all know that he does, because she is an open book to him.

And I cry.

*Nazgul screech* okay, wow I’ve reached 800 followers. what? how did it happen? I never thought there would be so many of you (like ever?) and everyone is so nice and sweet and caring and I just wanted to say thank you, I am grateful for every single one of you.
